performed a very thorough home inspection and not only pointed out the items I needed to know but also gave suggestions for future maintenance. She had also given me a full report the same day and information on vendors to use where I can get a discount for their services. I would highly recommend her services.

We bought a builder's spec home on a short sale that was 75% complete, and with no insulation in the attic and a few years of just setting, we really wanted to understand if we had any environmental issues with the home that needed corrected before we finished the construction. After explaining our situation to
on the phone, he was very confident he could help. However, he wanted to do it immediately as it was convenient for him and while my husband was not going to be available, we decided to go ahead, knowing that we could depend on the report that was sure to follow the inspection.
came and inspected the home, providing commentary on what was going on and what needed to happen. I told him that I was not the expert and he assured me that part of his fee included a list of corrective actions and a phone conversation with my husband. The inspection was almost three weeks ago and still no list. I even called and spoke to
on the morning of 7/23 and he said he was working on the list and would have it to me that evening. Here it is now 7/28 and still no list.
knows we are waiting on this information and conversation with my husband to make decisions on how we will insulate the attic. At this point, I am not expecting anything, and we just wasted $499. If you looking for a specialized home inspector that will publish a report of their findings (which should include pictures and commentary on any problems, and suggested corrective actions), then keep looking. this is not it!

Being that i work in the service industry (Service Plumber) i know the meaning and actions of a professional. Thinking i had noticed all the faults with the property just because i work in the trades. I was very surprised that the inspector found and noted a number of issues i had overlooked. The in depth and thoroughness of the inspection saved my butt. I was ready to offer way too much money for the house. I'm so happy to have gotten a good inspector because it saved me big time. I would not hesitate to use

My inspector was named
Hiawatha Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
. He arrived at the site 1/2 hour early and was polite and courteous as he went about his business getting ready to start the process of inspecting a home that I was hoping to buy. He definitely had a very organized plan as he surveyed. He was beyond thorough. I know more about that house now than I know about the house I've lived in for over 25 years! When he saw a potential problem he traced it until he found the source. I was taking notes and he had no problem when I needed him to repeat something or slow down in his remarks when I needed more time to write. I could tell he knew his stuff. He didn't just tell me what was wrong with the property, he told me how old systems were, how to maintain things, what to expect in the future, proper use and care, things to watch out for....very, very thorough and knowledgable. He had special tools that I had never seen before to enable him to get into every nook and cranny. When I first called this company, I was just researching from a list of inspection companies my realtor had offered. The person on the phone told me they could look at my property within four days. I wanted to call around before committing ( being a price conscious person) and was told that they would honor a competitor's price as long as it was for the same exact service. They also offer a 100-day ( from closing date) warranty on anything they have inspected. I think they were a few more dollars in cost than their competitors but I definitely got what I paid for - and more! When the inspection began,

presented me with a three ring binder which contained information that anyone buying a home would find useful. The binder is over 100 pages on home maintenance facts, energy tips, local companies they recommend for other services, etc...Comfort Spec offers a lifetime Recall Service which notifies me if anything in my house ever has a recall. Within hours of the inspection, I received the basic written inspection (over 28 pages which included photos of any areas of concern as well as written instructions which echoed everything he had told me in person - I could throw my handwritten notes away!) I think I spent a tiny bit more using

, my inspector, was one smart guy. He made sure I knew what was in store for me if I were to purchase what I thought was going to be my "dream house." I felt that he really worked for me. An honest and thorough inspection that made me see the light. As disappointed ( heart broken, really) as I was, I am grateful that I went with this company. They really worked for me, not just telling me what I wanted to hear. I've heard that

's failure to report it or suggest further inspections by specialists. His work is way below the standard of care for inspectors. I have learned that Missouri inspectors are not required to be licensed or regulated like most other states. Please be very cautious in whom you choose. Our choice of

has refused to come even look at what he missed and has told us that the years of wood rot must have happened in the few months between his inspection and our inhabiting the home. There is absolutely no way this was the case. Wood rot like this takes many years to get this bad. Buyer beware!

did a great job... He really impressed my husband (which is hard to do) with his attention to details. He found things that needed repair that we would have never noticed without his services. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

was very professional and very detail oriented. He took his time and pointed out every little thing that could be of concern with our 90 year old home. Response time and punctuality were great. Would highly recommend.

showed up promptly and gave me an estimate which I felt was a fair price. He gave me a couple of alternative suggestions to do the job in the most economical way. He completed the work in one day and I was pleased with how it turned out. I would not hesitate to recommend

Excellent,
Hiawatha Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
was punctual, friendly and professional - he found several items the builder missed (which is normal these days) and we had the builder (Highland) correct. To Highland's credit, they were aware of most items and fixed them all quickly with no argument.
With so much residential construction happening in the Houston area, it is incumbent on homeowners to make sure everything is constructed/installed correctly on their home. I learned a lot from my three inspections with
Hiawatha Home Inspectors Provider Name Locked
, and the amount I paid him I considered an excellent investment to avoiding future issues with my home.
I would use
